*in tuna.

In the void of new insight (oh, except for this: I'm watching closely for signs of my eyes turning pink. I broke out the sandals today, and the legs show all the classic symptoms of albinism), I bring you this:

kadoma tuna, writ large.

Kadoma tuna from Jinsei—crispy rice topped with spicy tuna, avocado, jalapeƱos, finely chopped scallions, roe, and sesame seeds, then drizzled with a thick, sweet sauce.

kadoma tuna.

It's a textural masterpiece, though sometimes that rice will lodge in your molars and you'll spend a hell of a time digging it out in a most unladylike fashion.

What? Just me?

I could absolutely eat that spicy tuna with a spoon. Luckily, the Japanese eschew most utensils, making shoveling all that much easier.

It's best followed by this. Because hamachi nigiri


is why I get out of bed every morning.

Sign me up for both if those around October or November. Btw: I want your camera! Great pictures. You may have to take some maternity pictures for me.

I am a work in progress. I perpetually need a hair cut. I'm totally devoted to my remarkable nieces and nephew. I am an elementary home cook and a magazine worker bee. (Please criticize my syntax and spelling in the comments.) I think my dog is hilarious. I like chicken and spicy things. I have difficulty being a grown-up. Left to my own devices, I will eat enormous amounts of cheese snacks of all kinds.
